10: Range Rover
When it comes to off-road capability, Range Rovers are some of the most world-renowned trucks that you can buy. However, maintenance is key, and Reddit user Teh Penguin of Doom had a bad experience.“There was the time I decided to take it for a climb. On a 100F day. Blazing sun. A/C blasting. Five people in the car. Going 15 MPH up a long, steep incline, all the way up a mountain. Stupidly, I hadn’t checked the coolant level in a while, and I didn’t have an auxiliary radiator like the forums recommend. In a particularly muddy spot, where we couldn’t even get out of the car, the dashboard didn’t suddenly go dark.
“Coolant wasn’t boiling like crazy, steam wasn’t violently pouring out the engine, and after a few minutes of not overheating, I didn’t crack the entire engine block. Then there was the time I left it parked at the airport after a two-week trip. You know how airport signal transmissions confuse the hell out of the Range Rover electronics and wear down its battery, right? I ordered an Uber before I even got to my Range Rover. I thought I’d just get some stuff out of it, verify that the battery was dead, then take the Uber home and later call a tow truck to take away the Range.”
